Did you look where they have the things to clean tanks with? There's where I found mine. Just a sponge to clean the tank with but I'm using it to baffle the filter instead.

I don't know if they're all the same but mine are white.

This is a fantastic idea. Poor Zero can't do well with his filter, so I'm thinking of using a sponge baffle (I'm a little worried he'd some how get into the plastic bottle baffle). I'm also thinking of wrapping some of the sponge around the filter-intake valve so it would probably lessen the strength of the water being pulled in...think it'll work?

So I did as recomended with the filter sponge and it worked FANTASTICALLY I found a pre-filter sponge that would wrap around the intake valve as well so that my new little shrimp buddies don't get sucked in and so that Zero won't hurt his fins. Thank you muchly!!!!

I got it from petsmart and it was about 3 dollars. It's a pre-filter sponge and mine is by Fluval. Very handy especially since now Zero's fins will be safe and his new tankmates won't get sucked in. And thanks!

I got a three pack of sponges from petsmart, cut part of one and stuck it in the intake valve lol. I hope that works just as well.

That should work. Or you could take the sponge, wrap it around the intake valve and tie it off with a rubberband. Either way, it should work. (That's what I did for my bestfriend's aquarium filter. Hers was having a similar issue and I had extra sponges to fix her filter with)
